Nugget # 38 Life lesson from a FROG & The Liebster Award !!!

Hi friends,

This week I’d just like to share with you a short inspirational story of a FROG.

A frog was hopping around a farmyard, when it decided to investigate the barn. Being somewhat careless, and maybe a little too curious, he ended up falling into a pail half-filled with fresh milk. As he swam about attempting to reach the top of the pail, he found that the sides of the pail were too high and steep to reach.
He tried to stretch his back legs to push off the bottom of the pail but found it too deep.But this frog was determined not to give up, and he continued to struggle.He kicked and squirmed and kicked and squirmed, until at last, all his churning about in the milk had turned the milk into a big hunk of butter.The butter was now solid enough for him to climb onto and get out of the pail!

Each one can learn a life changing lesson from this simple story and that is no matter how impossible the situation before us may seem, we just gotta keep trying and never give up for sooner or later, often when we least expect it, the answer will come.

Also taking this opportunity to thank Joyce DeVivre who has graciously nominated me for the Liebster Award. Joyce is a wonderful woman of God who continues to touch many of our lives with the light of the Word and the love of God. Keep up the great work Joyce!;)
